(NaturalNews) An international tribunal made up of some of the world's leading environmental and human rights groups, is set to hold the world's most evil corporation
, Monsanto, accountable for its crimes against nature and humanity.
Dubbed "The Monsanto Tribunal," a cohort of scientists, environmentalists and professionals from all across the globe will put Monsanto on trial at an upcoming hearing at The Hague this fall, where the purveyor of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) and chemical crop herbicides will be charged for committing "ecocide."
The goal of the hearing will be to lay out all the evidence against Monsanto, and come up with a concrete plan to hold the multinational corporation responsible for injuring human life and destroying the planet
. The event will take place from October 12–16, 2016, with an official trial to be concluded on World Food Day.
"Recognizing ecocide as a crime is the only way to guarantee the right of humans to a healthy environment and the right of nature to be protected," reads the mission statement on The International Monsanto Tribunal's website.
Utilizing international guidelines for handling cross-border criminal activity
, the Tribunal will assess the full extent of Monsanto's improprieties and form a solid game plan for prosecuting the chemical giant in international courts.
"The Tribunal will rely on the 'Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights' adopted at the UN in 2011," the statement adds.
"It will also assess potential criminal liability on the basis of the Rome Statu[t]e that created the International Criminal Court in The Hague
in 2002, and it will consider whether a reform of international criminal law is warranted to include crimes against the environment, or ecocide, as a prosecutable criminal offense, so that natural persons could incur criminal liability."
